harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras. Hazy orange gold with thin white head. Herby orange aroma. Soft in mouth. Good mouthfeel. Good orange. Herby. Decent bitterness on finish. Very soft and rather drinkable. It disappeared in about 5 minutes so I must have liked it. Bitterness is good so is the mouthfeel.

teorn88 (3121) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours an amazing peach color with a big soapy white head. Aroma is hugely hoppy with tons of fruits: lemon, pineapple, peach. Some resinousness too. Taste is surprisingly low on bitterness, given the rich hopppy profile. Again, tons of summer fruits and resin. Medium bodied with good carbonation. One of the most refreshing and delighting beers drank recently. Amazing

jackl (4994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle straight from the source. Medium amber pour with a small white head. Nose is big mango fruit. Loads of pacific tropical goodness. Pineapple and orange. Light kiwi and whatever the fuck they put in all those polynesian cocktails. The taste is wonderfully balanced. Light tropical fruits meets the sting of citric acid. Some lemon and mango smoothie. Slightly chalky cheesy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, fantastic. Other people can claim US IPAs are so much better if they want to. What do they know?

Bottle. Golden with short lasting white head. Very piney aroma, slightly resinous, grapefruit. Taste of caramel, resinous pine, grapefruit. Quite sweet with a sticky and slightly bitter finish. Nice

brontebeach (160) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Really nice IPA. Aromatic and bitter in balance with good touch of carbonation. Fresh and citrus. Pours hazy pale orange with a white head.

joet (2228) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 8, 2013
Shared by MrDick. Unassuming modest sized IPA just off dry, full aroma, heavy neroli oils, earthy, bits of mineral, a touch of malt biscuit. Simple, beautiful, fresh. A real star at a recent tasting.

CraftBeerNick (1003) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle at home, this is another solid IPA from kernel, but not as good as some of the others of recent months, Centinial was outstanding

Keg @ Jolly Butchers 2014/4/8 Resinous orange aroma. Amazing flavour from the Mosaic - I assume! Probably a little hop dominant as you would expect from a Kernel IPA. Great body and good carbonation. There is a lingering sweetness but you’ll have to drink it slowly to discover it. Which is probably a good idea.
